Mandatory quarantine for travellers from very high-risk areas (requirement to stay at home or in your accommodation)
From 1 June 2021 you must quarantine if you travel/return to the Netherlands after staying in certain countries. This requirement also applies even if you have been vaccinated.
Quarantine declaration and negative COVID-19 test result
When travelling from a country on the mandatory quarantine list, you must:
- be able to show a negative COVID-19 test result;
- have with you a completed, printed and signed quarantine declaration.
Once you arrive in the Netherlands you must self-quarantine for 10 days. If, on day 5, you test negative for coronavirus, you are no longer required to self-quarantine. You can make an appointment to get tested once you are in the Netherlands by calling 0800 1202.
You may be fined if you do not have a quarantine declaration or if you do not comply with the mandatory quarantine requirement.
Mode of transport
It doesn’t matter how you travel to the Netherlands. The mandatory quarantine requirement applies regardless of how travellers enter the country; be it by air, train, bus/coach or car.
